Our Premium Female Test analyzes your matrilineal descent from the earliest humans to the present, by testing the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) passed to you by your mother. Your mtDNA is screened for differences on two control regions known as HVRI and HVRII. The resulting “mutations” define your maternal lineage (the DNA of your mother, her mother and so forth, all the way back).
Your mtDNA mutations are researched in the Cambridge Mitochondrial DNA Concordance and other authoritative databases such as . A history of your particular female haplotype or lineage is presented as part of the report, with comparative frequencies in world populations.
Who Can Take the Female Test
Males can takes this test as well as females.
How the Test Works
We send you a Premium Female sample collection kit containing four cheek swabs and instructions for collection. You send the samples back to our laboratory via the business reply envelope. The laboratory runs the genetic testing, and we analyze and interpret the results. Testing takes approximately three to four (3-4) weeks from the time the lab receives your samples. Your electronic report is placed in your account and you are notified by email within about another week.
